Our summer camp philosophy gets your child excited about nature and science through using Austin Zoo as an outdoor living classroom. It is an opportunity for your child to take risks, try new activities and to make new friends who have an interest in science.
Camps will be taught by experienced instructors and well-trained counselors. Your child will participate in many activities including investigating science through fun experiments, fostering their creativity through science-related arts and crafts, and learning about animals and environmental science through up close encounters. Come join us this summer for a roaring good time!
When you visit the rescued animals at our Zoo, you may also encounter native Texas wildlife on our Hill Country grounds. We thought it would be fun to tell you about our native reptiles, insects, birds, amphibians and mammals!
